Be it for your business or hobby, investing in an ultrasonic cleaner is just that, an investment. As with any equipment investment, you want to make sure you use the best practices to ensure you are getting peak performance and extending the life of your equipment. So, we have put together a handful of basic tips that will help you achieve both goals.

Many of the tips you see here and on other sites may make it seem like ultrasonic cleaners are only used for large businesses, but that is not the case. While we obviously have large industrial tanks, Omegasonics also has a wide variety of tabletop tanks perfect for home use.

Some of the key benefits of using an ultrasonic cleaner are:
- Helps to eliminate the risk of damage

Basic Tips on Using Ultrasonic Cleaners:
- Choosing the right ultrasonic cleaner
- Positioning your parts properly
- Avoiding surface damage
- Choosing the right cleaning solution and maintaining the solution
Choosing the Right Ultrasonics Cleaner
If you have spent any time on our website, you already know there are literally dozens of different machines from which to choose. For this reason, we always recommend you call a member of our team to work through finding the best possible cleaner for your needs. Chances are very high that we will have a tank in stock, but if we do not, our team can custom-build a tank to suit the needs of your business or home use perfectly.
Positioning Parts Properly
Due to the nature of the cleaning process, the parts put into the cleaner can move. You should never place parts on top of each other, for instance, to avoid the different parts coming into contact. They should be placed in a single layer with proper spacing. Additionally, if you have parts that have odd or complex shapes, you may need to move the parts around to ensure all surfaces and openings are being cleaned properly. Again, this is something our team can help you with to fully understand the best methods to use for cleaning.
Avoiding Surface Damage
As mentioned above, you want to avoid damaging the surface of your items by not overloading the tank. For products that have a finer or delicate finish, you may want to consider using an insert to the bottom of the tank that will help prevent the items from moving around, possibly scratching the surface. Our team members can help you with this.
Choosing and Maintaining Your Cleaning Solution
As the solution goes to work, it is removing contaminants and debris from the items it is cleaning. Those contaminants and debris can make the cleaning solution less effective as time progresses. You will have to change the solution periodically to ensure it is effective. Our team members will work with you to identify the best cleaning solution for all of your needs as well as recommend changeout times to ensure you are getting the most benefits from your cleaning solution.
